Is it written on gay's and transgender's foreheads that they are gay or transgender?

Loudoun County just managed to embarrass itself and its taxpayers/citizens without any reason, cause, or purpose....

The questions pertaining to someone's sexual orientation should NOT even be included on the job application.... then WHY the new law?

All it will do is to attract gay, lesbian, and transgender people to Loudoun County - and possibly cause families to relocate out of Loudoun to other more traditional counties.

Is this in the best interest of the Loudoun County residents?

“Indeed, I am!”

Well, Elzbieta, "WHY the new law." Do you know people who have pictures of their spouse or romantic partner on their desk at work? Do you think they should get fired if the picture is someone of the same sex? What about when people get together to talk about their weekend activities? If one of the women you work with mentions going to a romantic restaurant with her same sex partner, should she be thrown into the unemployment lines?

Perhaps a county employee is severely depressed, can't hardly get their job done and they go to a therapist who says they are transsexual and the only treatment that works is a gender transition? Should this person get fired just for getting a medical treatment of a condition they were born with?

All this aside, don't you realize this rule is just for county employees? Don't you realize that gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual people are more like you than they are different? There are probably about 30,000 GLBT people in Loudoun county already, I'll bet you can't tell which ones they are just by looking.

Your fears are unfounded, Elzbieta, you need not worry.

Thumbs up, Loudoun County VIRGINIA :-)

We need to spread the news so transgender, gay, lesbian, bisexual people can find a friendly place and roof over their heads here in LOUDOUN COUNTY, virginia. It's good to know. There are too MANY places in this great country that are NOT as accepting or progressive.

I personally think the same should be done for pedophiles. These people are so unfairly targeted .... it makes one think if The First Amendment means anything anymore....

There are countless psychologists and study after study who prove that children are NOT harmed at all if they are placed in a gay, lesbian, transgender homes or if they are in a pedophile relationship. As a matter of fact, some children benefit from such an arrangement and some even thrive....

I personally had a FEMALE friend who enjoyed a nice daily sex with her male dog. Yes, a DOG, a well bred German Sheppard....
I admit, it was a bit of a put off for me personally, but it's probably because it was a novice idea for me personally. It is all a matter of accepting new ideas.

What about putting electronic chips in newborns - right after they are born in the hospitals, in various body parts, genitals, brain, near heart - so they can be made more progressive and accepting ... or when they are at your babysitters house .....
